    I really love the Summer tee and Im thinking I make that into a dress. Now Can I use a size 10 thread yarn instead of the normal yarn?

      Hi Pesina! Thanks for your message. You’re welcome to adjust the pattern for the yarn you’d like to use. I’d love to see the Summertime Tee as a dress 🙂

    Thinking about making this with Sugar’n Cream cotton. Do you think there will be a big difference in how the shirt turns out? I’m still learning which yarns go best with different projects.

      Hi Lindsie! Thanks for your question. I think you certainly could make this tee from Sugar n Cream cotton. It might stretch a good bit, as cotton doesn’t have much memory when crocheted. Account for that when determining how long to make your tee. Otherwise, I think you’re onto something with using cotton!

    Hi, Toni! I love your designs and have decided to make your Summertime tee for myself. Also, I love the color on your nails in the tutorial—so much that I caught myself watching them instead of watching your actual work!😊😊 But, the tutorial is great. I’ve never done an extended single crochet but I like how it works up.

    Hi Toni,

    I followed along with your tutorial and made this tee. But after the first wash, it stretched from being a tee into a dress :(…What did I do wrong?

    Thanks

      Hi Lakshmi – I’m so sorry to hear that! I always encourage makers to hand wash or just spot clean their pieces to maintain the shape. The best way to get it back to a tee would be to dampen it slightly, put it in a garment bag, and put it in the dryer on high for 15-minute intervals until it’s back to a shape you want it to be. That should do the trick.

    Hi Toni,
    I found your site while looking for a fun pattern to use with my jean yarn. I am so thrilled to have found yours! I completed the summer tee and it’s super cute, I loved using the video while I was working on it because I’m much better when I see the work being done. I am excited to start in on another of your patterns (hopefully there are some more with videos!) Thank you for the time and energy you spent making this project a success!!
